Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for considering us as loving parents for your child and for allowing us the opportunity to share with you a little about us. We can’t imagine what a difficult and trying time this must be for you, but we hope that this letter (and our available profile book) will put your heart and mind at ease as we give you a brief glimpse into our lives and demonstrate just how welcomed this child will be.
Though we have never met you and we don’t know your specific situation, your decision to place your child up for adoption is a strong and powerful symbol of just how full of love your heart is. We truly wish you peace in the months to come, and our thoughts will be with you as we pray that God will give you the power and courage to guide you through this process, and that he will give you the strength to do what is best for your child and comfort you in your decision.
About Us –
We are Aaron and Stephanie, and during our last 20+ years together, we have been blessed to have had the opportunity to travel to many far and exciting places, and have been given the chance to truly experience a wonderful life together. We have worked hard in our schooling and in our careers. Aaron is a District Manager and Sales Trainer and has worked at the same company for more than twenty years. Stephanie is a very accomplished and well respected Attorney. Despite our successes and accomplishments, we have been true to ourselves, have stayed humble, and have never taken the blessings that we have been given for granted. We are comforted knowing that our dedication and commitment to our jobs (and to each other) will allow us to provide for this child in ways that most cannot, giving them the best upbringing and happiness, sending them to the best schools, and by allowing them the opportunity to travel and get to experience some of the best Food, Fun and Activities all along the way. We look forward to instilling in them a strong faith based work ethic, the confidence to DREAM big, set their life goals high… and the belief that they can truly accomplish ANYTHING that they set their heart and mind to.
On October 2, 2015 we were blessed by the birth and adoption of our daughter Clara Rose. It was an absolutely AMAZING GIFT, and one of the most unforgettable and life changing days of our lives. Having her as part of our family has been so incredible, and we are so excited to have this chance to grow our family even more.
About Stephanie –
Stephanie grew up in a military family – her dad spent 29 years in the Army before retiring and moving the family to Northern California. She comes from a family of chefs and bakers, which is probably why she loves to cook and entertain so much. Her grandparents (on her mom’s side) were immigrants from Italy and owned an Italian restaurant. Her dad’s family were bakers and she has fond childhood memories of visiting the family bakery and watching her aunts beautifully decorate cakes. Although she did not follow in her family’s footsteps professionally, she enjoys spending her free time cooking for family and friends.
About Aaron –
Aaron was born and raised in the Sacramento area where he has lived his entire life. Aaron’s parents both just recently retired after long careers working for the State of California and in 2015 they celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary. Growing up, he and his family enjoyed countless road trips together as they traveled on one of their MANY “Family Excursions.” In the Summer months, they spent most nights and weekends together on the baseball and soccer fields, with his dad always playing the role of coach. Aaron, like his older brother, started playing music early in his life, first playing the trumpet, and then later learning to play the DRUMS. Aaron and his Parents continue to share a love of Travel, Sporting Events, Music, Camping, Good Food and Spending family time together (especially with his new role as DADDY.) Recently he started running and has completed several Half Marathons and local Races!
Our Home & Community –
In 2007 we built our new home in a close knit, family oriented community. Our house is a two story, has plenty of extra bedrooms, a game room, a play room, a home office, and our dream backyard with a swimming pool, waterfalls and a huge fireplace to keep us warm. We have a private community center and clubhouse, a HUGE park with a GIANT play structure, a running track, basketball courts, baseball and soccer fields and a long walking trail. The elementary and High schools in our neighborhood are two of the best in the entire region.
Our Family –
We are blessed to have both sets of parents living within 20 minutes of our home. Aaron’s Brother, Sister-In-Law and Nephew live about 30 minutes away, and Steph’s Brother, Sister-in-Law and FOUR Nieces and Nephews live just a couple of miles from us. We are fortunate to be so close that we get to spend Holidays, Birthdays, Celebrations, BBQs and Parties with our Family and Extended Family, and we love to have people over to relax and have a good time together.
Everyone is so EXCITED for us to have this opportunity to welcome a NEW MEMBER into our family, and with plenty of Sister, Grandma and Grandpa, Cousin, Aunt, Uncle, Friend and Neighbor time, this Child will be spoiled with LOVE and ATTENTION from day one.
Our Deepest Thanks –
They say a picture is worth a THOUSAND words, but there are not enough pictures available to even come close to being able to show you just how important this decision is to us, and to our dream of growing our family. We are so grateful for the selfless decision that you have made, and cannot express to you in words, or pictures, how much we respect you for what you have chosen to do in the best interest of your child. We sincerely hope our story has touched you and that our love for each other, and for this child, shines through. We would be honored to share our profile book with you so you can see for yourself just how ready we are to write the next chapter in our lives. If you are interested in learning more or speaking with us, please contact Little Angel Adoptions at 1-888-281-8948.
Our Respect, Love, Thoughts and Prayers,
Aaron & Stephanie
